In 1958, King (still using his birth name) joined a doo-wop group called the Five Crowns. [4] Later that year, the Drifters' manager George Treadwell fired the members of the original Drifters, and replaced them with the members of the Five Crowns. [5] King had a string of R&B hits with the group on Atlantic Records . He co-wrote and sang lead on the first Atlantic hit by the new version of the Drifters, " There Goes My Baby " (1959). He also sang lead on a succession of hits by the team of Doc Pomus and Mort Shuman , including " Save the Last Dance for Me ", " This Magic Moment ", and "I Count the Tears". [2] King recorded only thirteen songs with the Drifters— two backing other lead singers and eleven lead vocal performances— including a non-single called "Temptation" (later redone by Drifters vocalist Johnny Moore ). The last of the King-led Drifters singles to be released was "Sometimes I Wonder", which was recorded May 19, 1960, but not issued until June 1962. [6]
